Thick, soft, and tough pulp paintings are comprised of layers of pulp - cotton, abaca, or other fibers - to express a thought about nature or life. Growing out of ideas from Blank Book covers, pulp paintings are first layered free hand with pulp, then I usually use stencils to paint on symbols and images with pigmented cotton pulp.  A visual poem, the fleeting images, fragments, and shapes convey something universal and personal.

There are 26 pulp paintings available and they can be seen in more detail here.
